    How do we modify albums in the "Change Desktop Background" area? I love the feature that cycles through photos as the backdrop, but I want to remove the widescreen images since I'm on a 12" PowerBook. I can't find the folder that stores all of these stock photos. Any help?

    Thanks!

    Are you talking about the stock photos Apple provides, or ones from iPhoto? If it's the latter, then what you need to do is create an album containing only the pictures you want to use. If it's the former, try /Library/Desktop Pictures/

    Spotlight is your friend. :D

    The stock photos are in subfolders that are pretty self-explanatory.

    You could also simply move those pictures you like (or copies of them) to a new folder and cycle from that, rather than getting rid of Apple's stock picts.

    Awesome, thanks. I don't have 10.4 yet. :-(
